know we take a legislative program before you. this program has been reviewed with the city and county of san francisco state legislative committee, including members of the board of supervisors, as well as earlier this month we reviewed the program, the draft program with the sfmta's citizens' advisory committee that was a good opportunity to go over in detail the recommendations brand new before you today. just to quickly walk you through some of the priorities here. starting with the coming year to deal with. our staff is preparing briefing materials so that they are familiar with the issues of the sfmta and our understanding of the broader realm of responsibilitis that this agency now has. the rest of the program here really focuses on the future in the coming year, discussions on plans for san francisco's implementation of the recently approved vlf legislation at the state level. i will make a note ever that for the portion of your conversation this afternoon on the state picture. we'll also anticipate a number of contracts going to the board in the coming year, as well as grants
to speak in opposition to this.jurisdiction so to speak. the city has plenty of problems especially after yesterday's ballgame.what use. there was a comment made orrectly --and advocate.an advocate. we are supposed to have impartial representation rather than people pushing certain agendas. it sounds strange that people should recuse themselves; i think it is opposite san francisco has gone way downhill, one of the reasons is because of special interests. since we are dealing with land use i would like to make a suggestion that since the 49ers are leaving after next year, you should consider the idea of turning candlestick park into a shopping area; from what i hear the only people hanging out there are undesirables. >> supervisor wiener: any other members of the public who would like to make a common item two? seeing none public comment is closed. (gavel) colleagues any additional comments? do i have a motion to forward this do i have a motion to forward this with positive recommendation? can we do this without objection?(gavel) item 3. ordinance amending the housing code, section 206,

's good for the city. so i think i'm happy to see the recommendation. thank you. >> i will just concur with director reiskin. and i think over the last -- actually over the last year the board of supervisors has spent quite a bit of time comparing rates and offerings between pg&e and puc with community choice aggregation. i think i came out of that process with incredible faith with the public utilities commission to really work through and offer the best deal possible both for the city and i do think it's a big win-win in terms of the revenue that is going to flow back to the city. and of course, the savings that will occur at tjpa and of course, the environmental impacts or the benefits is also a huge bonus. so i'm really happy to see this come before us and happy to support this as well. any other commentses or questions? let's take a vote on this item. >> motion to approve this. >> second. >> with a first and second, and any member of public wishing to comment on the item (roll call vote ) that is four ayes and item 7 is approved. >> thank you. can we please move to item no
